Virtual Salsa Dance Session

Do you want to have a deeper understanding of the dance and music?

The best way make a conscious connection between each movement your body executes to the different beats we dance to, is by learning their history.  These sessions will will guide you through that process.  The idea is to train not only your body, but also your ear and mind, helping you understand when, how, and why execute certain movements.

There will be only 15 spots available to ensure individualized attention.

We will be using the following format:
– Each class will have a ±20 minute technical warm-up, and ±10 minutes lecture, and the rest dance drills/material.
– 4 classes in each session, and each class will be a building block for the session
– Each class will concentrate in different dance / technique / rhythm / move vocabulary:
Class 1 – African Dance techniques
Class 2 – Afro-Caribbean Dance Techniques
Class 3 – Popular Dance Technique
Class 4 – Salsa/Mambo Fusion

Missed Class Policy.  There is no make up classes, but a link of the video recording will be provided for each class.  The video will only be available for 48 hours.

Dates: Tuesdays: May 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th.

Time: 8-9:30pm
